Cowboys' Jason Garrett to RB Joseph Randle: 'Focus on doing, not talking'
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Cowboys running back Joseph Randle had a very public back and forth with former teammate DeMarco Murray last week. Randle's coach Jason Garrett wants his guy to stop talking and start doing, per

“We addressed that with Joe really immediately,” Garrett said. “I think sometimes comments like that get taken out of context or they are not really intended the way they come out. I think Joe has great respect for DeMarco as we all do. Joe did a good job with his opportunities. Joe and everyone else on our football team, we have to focus on what we do, not with what we say and I think he understands that. But the biggest thing is you need to focus on doing, not talking.”

Randle said Murray "left a lot of meat on the bone" last year, referring to the NFL's leading rusher giving up on certain runs roo early.

Randle rushed for 343 yards and three touchdowns last season, while Murray led the league with 1,845 yards and 13 touchdowns.

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Eagles running back DeMarco Murray and his former teammate Joseph Randle have an interesting back-and-forth going on, per

Randle, who backed up Murray as he lead the NFL in rushing, has recently said Murray "left a lot of meat on the bone" last year. 

Murray rushed for 1,845 yards and 14 touchdowns last season, helping the Cowboys become one of the most potent offenses in the league.

"Hopefully he can taste some of that meat this year," Murray said of his former teammate.“They’re a good team. Hopefully he can get a chance to run behind that line and do some good things. But I’m not worried about it. I didn’t hear about it until now. It’s not a big deal.”

The Cowboys will use a multi-running back system with Randle leading the way. He rushed for 343 yards and three touchdowns as Murray's backup last year.

Cowboys RB Joseph Randle confident he can replace DeMarco Murray
by Sean d'Oliveira |

With last season's leading rusher no longer on the team, Cowboys running back Joseph Randle said he can replace the 1,845 rushing yards DeMarco Murray produced last season, reports The Dallas Morning News.

"He had a good year last year, and I got to sit back and watch a lot," Randle said, "and I felt like there was a lot of meat left on the bone."

Randle did get first-team reps during Wednesday's OTA session and he said he's ready to handle a heavy workload this season.

"I'm going to try to go out there and grind as hard as I can and see which role I end up in," Randle said. "If they ask me to do that, I'm ready for it. And if they believe in me, I believe in myself, that’s for sure."

Randle has been arrested twice in the last year, but he said he's learned from his mistakes.

"Everything you go through in life you learn from it and I learned from it and I've moved past it. I've grown up," Randle said. "I've made some young and silly mistakes, but I'm moving forward."

Cowboys weighing off-field issues of RB Joseph Randle
by Marty Gitlin |

The Cowboys have far more to consider than talent on the field in regard to the possible featured back status of Joseph Randle.

Randle could earn that distinction with DeMarco Murray gone, but his recent arrests on shoplifting and drug charges have given the team much more to think about.

"I think Joe really has to make sure he takes care of everything on and off the field," running backs coach Gary Brown told the Dallas Morning News. "We want to trust Joe, we like Joe, but we want to make sure he's going to be with us at all times.

"I think he's maturing up and he's getting better and he understands the opportunity he has in front of him and I think he'll take full advantage. I think those days are behind him and we're looking forward to working with Joe. ... He and I have sat down and had one-on-one conversations about his future and I think he wants to go in the right direction."

Randle, would could face discipline from the NFL for his indescretions, averaged an impressive 6.7 yards per carry last season.

Cowboys RB Randle won't face felony charges in domestic case
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Cowboys running back Joseph Randle will not face felony domestic abuse charges as the Sedgwick County, Kansas District Attorney cleared him in allegations made by his ex-girlfriend, per the Dallas Morning News, due to a lack of evidence.

Randle was involved in an incident with Dalia Jacobs, on Feb. 3 at a hotel in his hometown of Wichita, Kan. Jacobs accused Randle of pointing a gun at her friend and the infant son she has with the running back. She also said in a police report that Randle shattered the window of a car, sending glass flying across her friend and their son.

Randle could have faced a possible six-game suspension by the NFL if he had been charged in the case for a first-time offense under the league’s personal conduct policy.
